A reverie of images and sound, Below Dreams loosely follows the narratives of three very different people Elliott, newly arrived from New York, single mother Leann, and unemployed father Jamaine - as they negotiate New Orleans' streets, neighborhoods, and residents in search of an upward path to fulfill their dreams. But as each character experiences the city's realities, it becomes clear these hopes and dreams are no longer possible, and that with change must also come sacrifice. Garrett Bradley's impressive debut feature is shot verité documentary style to provide an unpolished, affecting realness as we become immersed in the characters' individual challenges and quests amid the relaxed, yet demanding urban backdrop of the Crescent City.
